CNVC Certified NVC Trainer, NVC mediator, and TRE-counselor
My first IIT was in Switzerland with Marshall Rosenberg in December 1999. And the last time I attended an IIT, that time as a trainer, was over 15 years ago with Marshall Rosenberg, Eva Rámbala, and Eva Hava Jonai in Hungary. Now I am happy and excited to be the organizer and host for the first time in Finland and contribute to offering often a life exchanging experience for my Finnish friends and, of course, the international NVCers around the world. This time I am also excited to be able to observe my colleagues with more experience from training in IITs, certainly learn a lot about how things work nowadays, and, I believe, also get loads of inspiration.
I’ve been a CNVC Certified NVC Trainer since 2002, and my main work for about 10 years now has been giving year-long NVC trainings through my company, Savanna ConneXions, which celebrated its 20th birthday in 2020. More than 20 groups have completed my training program and received the title of “Rakentavan vuorovaikutuksen ohjaaja, RVO” (in English: Constructive Communication Counselor, CCC), which is my company’s trademark. I’ve gained a lot of experience in planning extensive training programs, supporting groups through a long-term intensive learning process, and supporting individuals as part of the group. In addition to those long public trainings, I’ve also trained different groups in companies, organizations, and in the public sector (e.g. hospitals, schools, communities, and social services). I’ve also provided mediation and mediation training and give lectures, speeches, and shorter trainings to very different kinds of customers.
During our days together in Finland, I believe that in addition to my workload as the organizer together with my team, I’ll be offering support to the group and individuals whenever I sense there might be a need and space for it.
My focus is shifting more and more towards supporting people who wish to become Certified NVC Trainers, and I have attended a couple of CNVC Assessment Events. In Finland, I am mentoring a group of around 20 participants, who have started or plan to start their certification process. At the moment I am the only active CNVC Certified Trainer in Finland at the moment and I am also, therefore, longing to have colleagues to work with and continue my work after my time.
Looking forward to meeting you all in Kiponniemi, Finland! You are warmly welcome! Let’s have a time of our life! Hanna
